From Steve Forbes, the iconic editor in chief of Forbes Media, and Elizabeth Ames coauthors of How Capitalism Will Save Usa€”comes a new way of thinking about the role of government and the morality of free markets. Americans today are at a turning point. Are we a counAstry founded on the values of freedom and limited govAsernment, as envisioned by the founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution? Or do we want to become a European-style socialist democAsracy? What best serves the public gooda€”freedom or Big Government? In Freedom Manifesto, Forbes and Ames offer a new twist on this historic debate. Todaya€™s bloated and bureauAscratic government, they argue, is anything but a force for compassion. Instead of assuring fairness, it promotes favoritism. Instead of furthering opportunity, it stifles economic growth. Instead of unleashing innovation and material abundance, its regulations and price controls create rigidity and scarcity. Not only are Big GovernAsmenta€™s inefficient and ever-expanding bureaucracies ill-equipped to deliver on their promisesa€”they are often guilty of the very greed, excess, and corruption routinely ascribed to the private sector. The only way to a truly fair and moral society, the authors say, is through economic freedoma€”free people and free markets. Throughout history, open markets have helped the poor and everyone else by unleashing unprecedented creativity, generating wealth, and raising living standards. Promoting trust, generosity, and deAsmocracy, economic freedom has been a more powerful force for individual rights, self-determinationa€”and huAsmanitya€”than any government bureaucracy. Freedom Manifesto captures the spirit of a new movement that is questioning old ideas about the moAsrality of government and markets for the first time since the Great Depression. Going beyond the familiar explanations and sound bites, the authors provide a fully developed framework of a€œfirst principlesa€ for a true understanding of the real moral and ethical distinctions between more and less government. This timely and provocative book shows why free markets and liberty are the only way to a better future and a fair and humane society.To make matters worse, you can violate this ridiculous law ifyou are simply a regular citizen who has a computer repaired by someone who doesna#39;t have a PI license.
